In Sweden, as in many countries the Christmas is filled with traditions of dishes that should be served around this time of the year. I however think it’s the different spices that really make Christmas. Today, the classic gingerbread spices will give taste to my Christmas granola with orange. Good for a yogurt, in a cake or maybe even as adding some crisp to a salad!
With all the amazing fruits and vegetables that are ready for harvest right now, it is a true pleasure to make your own fruit leather. It’s so easy to make and fun experimenting with!
Like creamy, dark truffles. But as a smooth chocolate cake. That you can store in the freezer so that you don’t have to eat everything at once. Or, always be prepared when that I-must-have-something-anything-will-do! feeling (sorry, guests I mean of course) arrive … A smooth chocolate cake made with the finest cherries from a garden close to you. And puffed quinoa from maybe a bit further away.
Today, I make a granola with fresh plums and cinnamon for coming breakfasts. After all, a good breakfast waiting make it somehow easier to get out of a warm bed in the morning! It just might be handy after a long vacation…
It’s been hot in the Netherlands lately! So hot that I started to look for alternatives to my daily hot coffee… Therefor, today a ice cold pick-me-up coffee drink with lots of goodies in!
Do you want a nice breakfast that makes you happy and going until lunchtime? Then you just have to try my full-grain quinoa porridge with plenty of deliciousness!
I can’t wait for the summer to come but while waiting I make this smoothie bowl with taste of summer!
Condiments: make your own vinegar, harissa and hot sauce was released in Sweden in 2015, but just recently it appeared here in Holland translated and today I have the pleasure to review the book. I also have chosen a super recipe. So simple yet so incredibly useful; your own homemade dehydrated veggie bouillon!
Did anyone whisper a word about coming winter holidays? Maybe filled with outdoor activities? Did someone mentioned children (or grownups) with red cheeks and tired legs? Time to serve stacked pancakes with ginger filling and twisted apple!
Soon it’s Valentine’s Day and of course it should be well celebrated with someone you love; a sweetheart, best friend, family, or why not just because you can. Perhaps you want to celebrate the day with a festive dessert made with fried rice paper dressed with lemon curd, sweet fruit and tangerine caviar beads?
